Summary

From the White Wolf catalog:

Cursed by the Divine
Faith in the Final Nights sometimes tends to polarize people, and the Kindred are no exception. Despite the cynical lack of faith that all too often characterizes the modern nights, a rare few find strength in reverence of a higher power. For these Kindred, spirituality is often a harrowing road as they are forced to reconcile their undead natures with the tenets of a God they may well feel has abandoned them.
State of Grace includes:
  • Insight and information on playing a character devoted to a certain faith
  • An examination of the nature of faith and some of the groups that act in its name
  • Advice for building characterization as well as for introducing new plot threads
